Well this is going to be awkward.
I'm 18 and I live in Australia, and for some reason I both like hockey and support the Kings.
Now I'm not an absolute know all when it comes to hockey nor do I watch any games mainly due to the fact I don't have cable and hockey isn't a very popular sport over here, well not the NHL anyway.
I've only really started getting right into it in the last year or so when the free agents were signed before the start of last season (Nagy, Calder, Handzus etc, I think it was them and some more from memory) and I've been sort of skimming through the posts and topics on here for about a month, slowly learning things that I was not previously aware of, such as Cloutier being a immature crybaby who trash talks about his own team, and Crawford being an absolute tool (I had my suspicions (sp?) though, no one can look like him and have a haircut like that and be a normal man).
My favourite Kings are Kopitar, Brown and JMFJ and well call me stupid but I like LaBarbera too, sure he didn't put up the best numbers this season but he kept a slight hope alive, until he was substituted with like 10 other guys -.- and would someone explain to me why this teams hopes rest on Bernier? I don't really think his numbers in the minors are all that impressive, but then again, I haven't seen him in action.
But yeah, that's about it from me, just glad to be on here, talking hockey and hope to make some good friends, and I will ask that if you see something I post and think it's stupid, just remember I don't know everything like it seems other people on here do.
Oh, and last thing.
F*** Stamkos, Doughty FTW!

Not knowing anything about hockey is definitely not a problem on this website... You'll fit right in. Welcome!

Just act like you know something, then when someone says something just blow it up, tell your friends so they can blow it up, then we will come back on and claim we were "just joking."

Australia must be one happy place if its residents have to import pain, agony and frustration.
*Love Australians, dry, dry sense of humour... my people, for sure.
